During classes, students use a ballet barre to balance as they flex isolated muscles with isometric contractions. Barre Bliss’ special form of barre fitness also incorporates elements of weight training, Pilates-mat work, and yoga to tone and sculpt bodies.Barre Bliss
If Barre Bliss looks familiar, it’s because its unique take on barre workouts was featured on CBS Minnesota WCCO. In real life, as on television, instructors led by owner Mia Jenneman and co-owner Shad Holland introduce each student to their specially formulated version of barre fitness. As students grip a ballet barre for balance, they listen in as instructors lead them through concentrated, isometric contractions that target specific muscle groups with more focus than a bear chasing honey-flavored salmon. But at Barre Bliss, the ballet-style movements are periodically interrupted with floor sessions, where yoga, Pilates exercises, and strength-training exercises with dumbbells and medicine balls challenge students’ strength and stamina. The result is an intense session that activates tiny muscles as well as full muscle chains, resulting in a full-body workout that both sculpts frames and sheds pounds.
